So you are going to have guys doing what to repair what when you are describing a non issue.
Please post a copy of the Field Service Notice from Remington that states what you discribed is an issue? Also post a copy from Remington of the procedure to correct it. This is the only safe way to post information and to keep people from DIY on their weapons except when necessary.
Just left Ed at Remington Field Services a voice mail so I'll get the official notice later today unless he's taken a long weekend. The notice came out on Remingtons' rarc.remington site about 4 or 5 years ago. Fred and the guys at Remington LE training don't cover it in the Armorer course because Armorers aren't authorized to do the repair.
What I was trying to illustrate is how the gun works, so what's happening can be understood. Most end users don't understand how the locking block and breech bolt assembly interact with the action bar and trigger plate assembly.
Anyway, it is not
an ammo issue. It is simple tolerence stacking and can be repaired by any Remington repair center, Illion or gunsmith who knows about the problem.
